the victoria climbi corpus vcc
The Victoria Climbié Corpus (VCC)
  • The Victoria Climbié Inquiry (Laming Report)
  • Major review of the child protection system in England and Wales -> Green Paper ‘Every Child Matters’
  • Inquiry investigated circumstances surrounding the death of Victoria Climbié
  • Took evidence on wider aspects of the child protection system through a series of seminars
  • Reported to both the Home Office and the Department of Health
  • Issues still relevant today - Baby Peter, etc.

relevance for child protection education and research
Relevance for child protection education and research
  • Single case
  • Inquiry talk v outside relevance
  • Inquiry talk itself – accounting, blaming, establishing credibility
  • Topics of interest themselves – supervision, child protection procedures, allocation in everyday contexts
  • Importance of Victoria Climbié Inquiry in child welfare policy and practice
  • Public inquiries as a mechanism of social policy

  • 64 days of the verbatim cross-examination of witnesses (up to 200 pages per day)
  • Written submissions (image pdf – not part of current study)
  • Evidence about state of child protection services in late 1990s
  • detailed testimony about:
    • day-to-day practice
    • decision-making
    • inter-agency working
    • the context of service delivery
    • policy making across all agencies: social services, police, health, voluntary groups.

But:
  • HTML pages not amenable to analysis
  • Data set very large - too large for some uses/users
  • Needs a means of “navigation”
    • Like Medjedovic & Witzel (in FQS) we believe some basic coding of the corpus is helpful and compatible with further analysis done by other researchers.

Victoria Climbié Corpus Launch Event. April 2010

the huddersfield victoria climbi corpus project
The Huddersfield Victoria Climbié Corpus Project
  • Identify themes & topics in cross-examination required by or of use to a range of professional & educational users -> Delphi exercise (Univ. funding)
  • Catalogue and code data & establish system of data management & retrieval. (Using Atlas.ti software)
  • Establish an online data corpus available for future research/teaching use outside the University. (Using XML output from Atlas.ti in University Repository) (Jisc funding)

themes for coding
Themes for coding
  • From Delphi and other advice
  • 108 codes used to code the data thematically e.g.

used atlas ti
Used Atlas.ti
  • Question from lawyer and answer from witness combined into single quotation
    • 47,352 quotations

barriers to archive use following corti
Barriers to archive use (following Corti)
  • Problem of the implicit nature of qualitative data collection and analysis – context and reflexivity
    • Climbié corpus collected in a well documented, legal setting
  • Lack of time to get fully acquainted with research materials created by someone else
    • We are doing some of this work
  • Constraints of informed consent
    • Inquiry is matter of public record and already on Web.
  • Insecurity about the exposure of one’s own research practice; IPR or threat of misinterpretation
    • Delphi means coding reflects wide range of professional needs
  • Lack of publicly available research data
    • Similar inquiries (Bichard, Children in Instl. Care etc.)
